It'll take a lot of time, that's for shore!
Maybe, i bought them in different occasions, and some divided with friends, it's no cheap! (but it's fun!)
cheers

Lol,
hi martin, you are 100% right! I have those pipes for, maybe 15 years (this was tha last time that i bought a new filter).
I keep the pipes since then, they are very useful. I don't know if they still sell the filters with that pipes but i believe they do! ;)
Of course i've changed the green with one of mine stainless steel DIY pipes! Next photo you'll seee...:watching:
I still have some cabinet work to do...the heather will be out of the tank also... External heather.
In 20 years you'll remember 'nostalgic' these pipes, they marked an important era of aquariums/filters...
In a few days i'll get a new photo,
cheers

why does Eheim keep using their hoses in this way
they probably have gazzilions of feet of this stuff lying around. These originate from the era most tanks used to be fully encased, with these pipes hidden behind the plants:

Funnily, if you look at their website, with the new tanks (more exposed) they dont show equipment being installed (in the tank that is, there is a filter, but how it works is a mystery:lol::lol::lol:)

I guess they will have to produce something new when the economy drives them to it.

It's the new "atomic water disintegration" technology from Eheim. The green tubing is so ugly that disintegrates water into molecules but they manage to have again all the atoms together in the tank... and guess what, it helps to get rid of algae :lol::lol::lol:
